MORE MEDIA WATCH BRIEFS

A year after former editor in chief Shekhar Gupta’s departure,  the Indian Express proprietor  Viveck Goenka  made expansive speeches to staff at both Mumbai and Delhi  about how well the paper was doing, how politicians read it with both trepidation and anticipation, and how its great content had made it the no. 3 Indian newspaper on the Net. He announced the launch of more editions starting with Jaipur this weekend.

 

Freedom First, a monthly from Mumbai to promote liberal thought and the Swatantra Party ideals, founded 64 years ago by Minoo Masani,  will close its print edition  and continue only online, www.freedomfirst.in. An announcement in its July edition cites "paucity of financial and personnel resources."  Ironically, the announcement comes in the edition which carries several obituaries on its the long-term editor, S V Raju who died last month.

 

On July one the story about J&K minister Lal Singh messing with a woman doctor was online everywhere. It was  the most commented on story in the Hindu . Yet none of the print-editions of the papers on July 2 (apart from the Indian Express)  carried the story or the picture. Now what could be the reason for that?
